    Season 2 Episode 17 - "Aruba" - April 4, 2017

    Season 2 (DC's Legends of Tomorrow) | Arrowverse Wiki | Fandom powered by Wikia

    As the Legends are about to take off for their next destination, a massive timequake rocks the ship. In order to try and fix what has happened, they are forced to break the one cardinal rule of time travel. But if they are able to destroy the spear, they will face the ultimate consequence.
    Seriously, this team needs a vacation in Aruba.

    The best parts:

    The mini Waverider shooting at Daarhk was hilarious but I would think the power/energy in the ships weapons should do some damage, but why let logic mess up a scene.

    The Legends meeting each other.

    Not the best story but I liked how they wrapped it up especially with Sara doing the healing by releasing the time wraith and changing the charging spell for the Spear.

    Luv'ed that they landed in LA and that they "Broke Time".

    Season 3 Episode 1 - "Aruba-Con" - October 10, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    In the altered Los Angeles, the Legends encounter Rip, who reveals that he has created the "Time Bureau" to replace the Council. Bureau agents fix the “anachronisms,” and Rip disbands the Legends. Six months later, the Legends are living normal lives, nostalgic for their previous adventures. In Aruba, Mick captures Julius Caesar and informs Sara, who takes Ray and Nate in a quest to prove their worth to the Bureau. After delivering the wrong man and being dismissed by Rip, the Legends, joined by Jax and a reluctant Stein, steal the Waverider and capture the real Caesar. When Rip demands they deliver Caesar to the Bureau and let the Bureau fix the anachronism, the Legends choose to return Caesar to 49 BC themselves. During the return, Caesar steals Nate's history book and uses this knowledge to conquer the world. The Bureau arrives and seizes the operation. During an excursion to retrieve the book, Agent Sharpe is captured, forcing Rip to allow the Legends to fix the anachronism. Rip tells Sharpe that the Legends can be useful in neutralizing "Mallus". In Zambesi, 1942, a more powerful Amaya attacks a group of poachers who seek to harm her village.
    The best thing this show does is poke fun at itself, the superhero genre, and time travel. While ernest they are also bumbling heroes with comedic flare a touch Dr. Who like who travel through time fighting bad guys and fixing time. The new time police the Time Bureau think they are nothing but bumbling idiots, but Legends vs Time Bureau is a bit like tired field agents who long ago found a way to break all the rules to fight the good fight versus uptight bureaucrats who have never really experienced being on their own with no backup. Good fun all around.

    Season 2 Episode 2 "Freakshow" - October 17, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    Six months ago, Amaya learnt of Mari's vigilantism and suddenly left Nate. In the present, the Legends head to a petty anachronism in Wisconsin, 1870, when they intervene a circus by P.T. Barnum, who has captured an extinct tiger. Ray's shrinking device malfunctions, leading to the enlargement and escape of the tiger. Sara visits Amaya and convinces her to return, to Nate's displeasure. While Nate, Ray and Jax visit an inn, Amaya and Sara shrink and lock the tiger. Nate tells Barnum about their powers. Intending to use them for his shows, Barnum captures Ray and Jax while Nate informs the Legends. Amaya tells him that she had to leave 2017 in order to preserve Mari's existence. While Sara engages with Sharpe on the Waverider, the Legends attack the show and rescue their teammates, removing the anachronism. Nate reconciles with Amaya, who tells the Legends that she has begun to lose control of her animal powers, resulting in her psychopathic behavior. Sara tells the Legends about the Mallus threat, which they do not take seriously considering their previous accomplishments. A follower of Mallus summons Kuasa.
    Sometimes I don't think this show knows what it wants to be. Serious, comic relief, action thriller. Best scenes: Dr. Martin Stein playing the clown and making balloon animals. Sara on her weekly rampage. The very last scene where someone in a dark cloak and cowl ressurects someone ... this was chilling and dripped in malice.

    Season 3 Episode 3 "Zari" - October 24, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    In Seattle, 2042, Time Bureau Agent Gary discovers hydrokinetic assassin Kuasa pursuing Zari, a hacktivist, and sends a distress signal. The Legends receive it and find Seattle under martial law by A.R.G.U.S., which is hunting down metahumans. They find Zari, who demands help to rescue her brother from prison in exchange for finding Kuasa. Amaya is uncertain about her powers, so Stein and Nate seek a solution, with Nate synthesizing a Zambesi hallucinogen. She uses it to have a vision with an ancestor, who advises her to trust the increasing strength. While Jax initiates an unplanned prison break, Zari retrieves her brotherís amulet, admitting his murder by A.R.G.U.S., and ditches the team. Ray pursues her to a campsite where her family was to rendezvous. Kuasa attacks the duo while Sharpe pursues the Waverider in the timestream. The Legends arrive and Amaya, now in control of her powers, defeats Kuasa, who vanishes using a mystical item and implying to be a descendant of hers. Sharpe warns Sara that if the Legends are arrested, they would be banished to the "dawn of time". Amaya decides to stay and recruits Zari to the team. In 1988, a young Ray encounters an unknown creature.
    Nice feel, looks as if this will be a good season.

    The fight scenes between Kuasa, a meta human or sorcerous who can turn to water were well done.

    Nate being high on a Zambesi root was hysterical especially when he was doing a great job being Scotty (Start Trek reference). The marshmallows line was good too.

    Season 3 Episode 4 "Phone Home" - October 31, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    Ray suddenly disappears in the Waverider, with Gideon revealing that he died around Halloween of 1988. The Legends travel to 1988, when Ray reappears and finds his younger self has adopted a baby Dominator. Eventually, government agents take the baby Dominator, leading Ray, young Ray and Zari to break in to rescue it, while Sara, Nate and Amaya discover the Dominator's mother has returned to retrieve her child. The baby uses mind control to distract the agents, and the Legends get it back to its mother, who leaves in peace. When young Ray gets picked on by bullies at Halloween, the Legends show up and defend him. Meanwhile, Jax and Mick learn that Stein is anxious to be present for the birth of his grandchild and help him with it, "borrowing" the Waverider. Later, Jax asks Ray to help figure out a way to split Firestorm, so that Stein may have a normal life.
    Someone must luv E.T., the episode was an interesting meld of E.T. and a bit of The Men in Black and much of it done on Halloween.

    Season 3 Episode 5 "Return of the Mack" - November 7, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    Nate manages to rearrange the anachronisms into a pattern with two "outliers", one Kuasa's attack and other being a suspected vampire attack in Victorian London. The Legends arrive and meet up with Rip, who is investigating a conspiracy involving Mallus, an ancient archenemy of the Time Masters. They discover Darhk's body, and Zari encounters a follower of Mallus called Madame Eleanor, who steals her amulet and reveals herself as Darhk's time-displaced daughter. Rip traps the Legends aboard the Waverider to protect them before attending Darhk's resurrection, which Eleanor achieves using the amulet. The Legends arrive and engage Darhk and Eleanor, who escape eventually. Sara reports Rip to the Bureau, who promptly arrest him, relegitimizing the Legends in exchange. Rip warns Sara about Mallus's importance. Meanwhile, Jax has Ray attempt to sever his psychic connection with Stein, but suffers short-term memory losses as a side effect. Stein finds out and eventually decides to help them.
    London, Jack the Ripper, vampires, what is not to luv about this episode and Rory reading Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    Rip Hunter back to being a rogue ... I thought there he was going to team up with the legends this season ... maybe later?

    Luv Jax's idea of splitting up Firestorm ... that will be so easy and no problems along the way.

    Damien Dhark is back ... don't like the character but he is a good "bad guy" will see what happens.

    Season 3 Episode 6 "Helen Hunt" - November 14, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_3_.282017.29

    The Legends track another anachronism to 1937 Hollywood, revealed to be Helen of Troy. The team also encounter Kuasa, who is revealed to be a granddaughter of Amaya, Darhk, who claims that "anachronisms are good for business", and Eleanor, who is revealed as Darhk's daughter. The Legends eventually manage to obtain Helen, who refuses to return to Troy, due to the sexist landscape. Zari sympathizes with her, and takes Helen to the island of Themyscira where there are no men and she can live in peace. Martin, Jax and Ray attempt once again to transfer Martin's energy into Jax, but end up with Jax and Martin switching bodies. With the help of Hedy Lamarr, Stein's boyhood crush and a science prodigy, they manage to switch back after merging into Firestorm. In return, Martin persuades Hedy to pursue her dream of an acting career, preserving history.
    Liked the Freaky Friday switcheroo between Jax and the Professor.

    Liked the references to Hedy Lamarr and her acting as well as her brilliance as an inventor, in fact this film is rather filled with references to women being strong and taking care of themselves and being able to defend themselves. #GirlPower

    Great nod to Wonder Woman and the Amazons.
